Superman. The Man of Steel was first featured in Action Comics #1 as a man with a blue and red costumed holding a car above his head. The birth of Superman ushered in the first true era of comic books known as the “Golden Age” of comics which featured a new wave of costumed superheroes, secret identities, and the creation of common superhero tropes that are still present today.

Jonas, like most archetypal heroes during this step, notes that he believes that his life will change due to this call to a mysterious adventure.
